Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

“Masterpiece. No matter where you are (and where you’ve been), I’m certain you’ve stumbled upon something extraordinary: a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.”

This week the photo challenge is to share what masterpiece means to me..

Man is very creative and has created wonderful works of art yet, for me, the greatest artist remains nature. The natural world is where I find myself catching my breath because the beauty is overwhelming. When I step to the edge of a canyon, watch a bird or gaze inside a flower, I see that our wonderful creator has sculpted another masterpiece with magnificent grandeur or delicate intricacies.

Using the simple artist tools of wind and water, wonderful works of art have been created for out enjoyment. The two things we, as humans try to control, but ultimately fail to control, work together to present masterpieces.

Here are but a few of the creative masterpieces I have enjoyed with inexplicable joy.
